We took care of Skorpyon and the Chronomatic Anomaly. Gratz and great job to our raiders. We'll go for Trilliax, if we get it down then it's Star Augur Etraeus and if we have time possibly going back for Odyn.

We'll talk before we start about cake-eating and sterilizing priorities.

And of course the Laser please watch videos and read up! The icy veins write-up seems a bit skimpy so please check dungeon journal too.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

In celebration of the holiday, here's the first Tech to Be Thankful for Poll!

The questions are open ended. We’re asking what tech helps you collaborate, innovate, network and problem solve! The technology does not have to be specifically for education. It can be social media, project management and productivity tool, game, mobile app or website.

We will have the survey open until December 1st. It will be the basis of the best tech of 2016 that we will be compiling in December before we all leave for winter break.

Please share with your colleagues, instructors, faculty and students. It is an informal poll just for us to have fun before the holidays. Here's the quick bitly for the poll
